Plans Include Fund Raiser And Scholarship

Saturday 24 September 2005 @ 15:55 - GMT

On November 2, Elton and his partner are co-chairing a benefit for EJAF, according to the Post.

It's to be at Cipriani Wall Street, and the host will be CNN's Anderson Cooper. InStyle magazine will be honoured, as will Sidney and Caroline Kimmel. Fans will recall that Sidney is a businessman/philanthropist who contributed 30 million dollars towards a Philadelphia performing arts and community centre in his name--and where Elton performed at the opening events in 2001.

The musician will also be entertaining at the aforementioned fund-raiser, and the number to call for more details is 212-210-7763.

In addition, Elton is helping others back in the UK. He is setting up a scholarship for the three lads playing the title role in the West End Billy Elliot musical.
